I am considering to write some rewrite rules in a .htaccess file that meets the following conditions:

when user requests an url like :  http://localhost/img.php?w=12&h=21&d=5
apache would check whether  the file named "images/img_12_21_5.jpg" exists, if yes, just rediect to the file; however if no, the browser will redirect to a file named "images/blank.gif";

Can it be implemented just using apache rewrite rules? Thank you.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^w=12&h=21&d=5$ //match exatly
RewriteRule ^img.php$ /images/img_12_21_5.jpg //rewrite to the new file
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} ! -s //not exist or empty
RewriteRule ^images/.*\.jpg /images/blank.jpg [L] //don't try next rewrites, redirect any non existent images/*.jpg
